Product Description

Anthony Girard took over the family domaine in 2007. It was originally created by his great-grandfather Serge Renard. Serge planted the vines on the Monts Damnés, working everything by hand and "treuil", a kind of cable chain used to hoist supplies up a steep vineyard. Serge's son, Andre Renard-Fleuriet continued. He is followed by Sylvie Girard, his daughter and mother of Anthony and David, and she remains active with the harvest, as do their grandmother and great-grandmother. Harvest is done entirely by hand and fermentations are done with only neutral yeasts. In 2015 Anthony's brother David joined him in the domaine. There are 3 hectares of vines all on the Monts Damnés and the vines are now 70 years old.

This particular wine, emanating from France’s spectacular 2015 vintage, stands as one of the most impressive wines from Sancerre we have recently encountered. As such, it is a STAFF FAVE
